MORE ART = BETTER HEALTH, LONGER LIFE FOR YOU

A 2019 World Health Organisation (WHO) review reported that the arts can play a major role in positively impacting both mental and physical health, relieving stress. In another 2019 study, researchers from University College London (UCL) found that people who engaged in the arts more frequently – every few months or more – had a 31% lower risk of dying early when compared to those who didn't.

Delight yourself, your friends and colleagues (on Zoom) with a nicer home / office background. Invest in some beautiful and inspiring artworks from emerging and established artists on PONS.ai for you to enjoy.

 

We vet our artists before they are allowed to sell with us, so you can be absolutely sure of the quality of our platform. Because of their quality and track record (e.g. CV, exhibition record and collector base), our artists' works certainly have the potential to increase in value over time.

KELVIN'S BACKSTORY

KT_LAUGH NOW.jpg

KELVIN TANG
CO-FOUNDER & CEO

"What will humans do when many of our jobs will be replaced by AI in the next 50 years?"

Relative to AI, creativity is our competitive advantage as humans. Realising how urgently a new creator economy must be built for humanity in the age of automation, Kelvin quit his job and founded PONS.ai.

His international career has spanned across incredibly diverse industries: ArtTech, management consulting, investment banking, rock music and neuroscience.

 

Before founding PONS.ai, at the age of 25, he operated in Strategy & Operations along with the Founders and CEO at Flashbay, a global tech company headquartered in London, U.K. with £100M+ annual revenue and 800+ employees across four continents (including a factory in China). Prior, he was Associate at a Boston Consulting Group (BCG) company, Expand, focusing on investment banking front office business and technology strategies. His previous roles also include FinTech Strategy Project Consultant at Deutsche Börse, and Equity Derivatives at Bank of China International (BOCI).

 

Kelvin holds a BSc in Neuroscience from UCL, where he was supervised by the pioneering neuroscientist and Founder of Neuroaesthetics, Prof. Semir Zeki. It was him who inspired Kelvin to understand more about the human brain through art and aesthetics. He also holds a CEMS Master's double-degree in International Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and Università Bocconi in Milan, Italy.

Since 2015, Kelvin has had an interest in AI and blockchain and is a self-taught programmer in both Javascript and Python. 

Whilst a student, he co-founded and sang for PANDORA, an award-winning HK alternative rock band. During his four-year stint, he performed more than 100+ shows in Hong Kong and the U.K., and released their debut album on HMV, iTunes and Spotify in 2013. Notable collaborations included Converse, Guinness, 903, Parsons and Tom Lee Music.

His hobbies include going to museums, the cinema and training Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
