Literary Critique of Art Manipulation
Funny Face (DC) is probably the first comic book character with this power and I distinctly remember thinking what a cool superpower this would be (Superman V1 #19).
In “The Sands that Change” story in Creepy #16, the protagonist can make his drawings real.
Sometime the art manipulation power strays into (285) Metafictional Manipulation as shown in My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic #53.
Painter of 1000 Perils (Marvel) – Marvel Legacy the Sixties Handbook #1 (1960)
Jimmy Olsen (DC) learns from Great Cloud how to make pictures into objects in Superman’s Pal #118.

People become paintings and vice versa in Justice League of America V1 #136 (1976).
