Art: Diving in at the deep end of Fan Yang-Tsung’s fluoro poolside paintings

Apart from being a stark reminder of how horrible sunburn is, there really aren’t any qualms worth noting about Fan Yang-Tsung’s utterly unique paintings. A lot of artists seem to be inspired by swimming pools, the way they distort the lower body and send off messages of leisure, and murder, and sex. In this case, Fan Yang-Tsung has taken his watery muse and represented it in a series of images so bold that you can almost feel the chlorine up your nose. Simple colours, a good knowledge of pool-side plants and some very small paintbrushes can take you far in our books. Swimming caps off to Fan Yang-Tsung!
