Fan Yang-Tsung's poolside paintings are so vivid, you can almost feel the sunburn on your skin.

The pool has often been a site of inspiration for artists. The communal space has become a beacon for sex, intrigue and murder in popular culture. While there are no bodies floating in the pool, Yang-Tsung's images are so bold and inviting, they conjure up memories and sensations of summers past. You can almost feel the ring that your goggles leave around your eyes, almost feel the stinging sensation of chlorine finding its way up your nose; you can nearly smell the coconut-scented sunscreen that signals pool season has officially begun.

If you were someone who frequented pools in the summer, whether it was for lessons or leisure, you'll definitely appreciate the nostalgic qualities of Yang-Tsung's series.
