TAIPEI -- Best known outside Asia for its collection of imperial Chinese art at the National Palace Museum, Taipei's art scene has recently been feeling more contemporary and international.

In March, art lovers flocked to exhibitions of works by Andy Warhol and Banksy, a U.K. street artist, which followed Taipei Dangdai, a new art fair, in late January. The event attracted 90 international and local galleries, and was visited by more than 28,000 people over four days.
