Evan Mock may be one of the world’s most sought-after male models, landing campaigns with Calvin Klein and shows for Louis Vuitton, but the Oahu-born skater and surfer was still navigating sports endorsements when he stumbled into a very 21st-century industry meet-cute: At a North Shore kickback in 2019, contemporary artist Tom Sachs clocked Mock’s pink hair and asked him to say hi to his friend in a skate video.
