After being discharged, I entered the graduate program at Ohio State and was hired as an art instructor, a post I held on and off for the next ten years.

In-between periods of painting, I undertook a variety of jobs, such as a draftsman and a window decorator. My artwork at this time fluctuated between Cubism and Expressionism.

In 1960, I started teaching at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where my work began featuring hard-edged figures and techniques derived from commercial printing.

When my artwork was first exhibited, it was harshly criticized as vulgar and empty. The title of a Life magazine article asked, "Is He the Worst Artist in the U.S.?”

However, at my first one-man show in New York, the entire collection was bought by influential collectors before the show even opened. Some of these paintings focused on solitary household objects such as sneakers, hot dogs, and golf balls.

Not Andy.

During the 1960s, I became one of the leading figures in the new art movement. My work defined the premise of pop art through parody.

My artwork was considered to be "disruptive,” and I described it as “industrial painting.”

Foolsnobody does it again! It’s Roy Fox Lichtenstein. My remaining clues were:

Some of my best-known works are relatively close -- but not exact -- copies of panels drawn by comic book artists (who rarely received any credit).

A hallmark of my style was the use of Ben-Day dots (used in comic books of the 1950 through the 1970s), which I enlarged and exaggerated in many of my paintings and sculptures.

The pieces called “Whaam!” and “Drowning Girl” are generally regarded as my most famous works. My most expensive piece, entitled “Masterpiece,” was sold for $165 million in January 2017.

I died of pneumonia in 1997, four weeks before my 74th birthday.

Your turn, Foolsnobody.

Well, since Foolsnobody is suffering serious health problems, and admitted recently that he can’t provide 3 clues for a new mystery personality, I’ll jump in with a new one:

I was born in 1940 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Raised in a Jewish family, I studied music at university and worked as a jazz pianist at a number of local clubs.

Strongly opposed to the apartheid system, I moved to the United Kingdom in 1961 and began to write for Jazz News.

The next year I formed a large blues-jazz band with a drummer friend who also played vibes and piano.

Bringing a shared love of jazz to the British blues boom then sweeping London's clubs, we soon attracted attention for our distinctive sound.

We eventually evolved into a five-piece group, playing more of a pop hybrid style, and signed a record deal with EMI in 1963.

In 1964, the group was asked to provide a new theme tune for the ITV pop music television program “Ready Steady Go!” With the help of weekly TV exposure, the song rose to No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart.

Jack Bruce had a brief tenure in our band -- notably playing bass on one of our hit singles -- before he left to form the band Cream.

We had a succession of hit records from 1963 to 1969, including cover versions of songs originally recorded by The Exciters and The Shirelles.

Although the band used my stage name, I was not the lead vocalist. Instead, the band had two different singers, one from 1962 - 1966, and another from 1966 - 1969.

When the group split up in 1969, I immediately formed an experimental jazz rock band with my drummer friend.

Mindpro is correct! It’s Manfred Sepse Lubowitz, known professionally as Manfred Mann. Best known as a founding member and eponym of the bands Manfred Mann, Manfred Mann Chapter Three, and Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

Remaining clues:

The jazz rock band disbanded after two albums, but I formed a new outfit in 1971 which still records and performs to this day.

My hits with this group included covers of other artists, including Ian Thomas, Bruce Springsteen, The Band, Bob Dylan, and The Police.

I’ve used various keyboard instruments through my career, but I’m especially known for my distinctive solo performance on the Minimoog synthesizer, which I personalized by extensive use of a filter.

Final giveaway clue: My band’s early hits include 5-4-3-2-1, Do Wah Diddy Diddy, Sha La La, Pretty Flamingo, Mighty Quinn, and If You Gotta Go, Go Now.

Your turn, Mindpro.
