Video: Graffiti artist thanks mum and dad for their support at his graduation by paying off their MORTGAGE

Have your say

Andy Evans, 22, decided as a teenager that he would pay for the family home as soon as he was able when they told him to follow his dreams of becoming an artist.

The graphic designer sold dozens of pieces of art work earlier this year after he was unmasked as ‘Professor Pigment’ - an artist daubing colourful designs around Stoke. And instead of spending the money on himself, he surprised his mum Jane, 54, and dad, David, 55, with a letter at his graduation from the University of Staffordshire last week. The kind-hearted graduate told them he had paid off the remaining “few thousand” pounds on the family home, as a thanks to his hard-working parents.
