Parisian artist Alix Soubiran created Princes & Crows in January 2008. Alix Soubiran is a fine artist, a traveler, a daydreamer and a storyteller. Alix credits her grandfather, a celebrated French author and recipient of the Theophraste Renaudot literary prize in 1943 for her passion for storytelling and fascination with stunning wall decor.
Alix describes her grandfather’s beautiful old house in the 16th arrondissement in Paris as the single most incredible place she ever set foot in. “It was a labyrinth of books from floor to ceiling where rooms of paper walls came to life. My sister and I would get lost in the odd architecture, where behind each tower, whose organization was known only to him, the wallpaper would reveal itself: A banana tree, a native Indian peaking out. It was my first encounter with Zuber’s scenic wallpaper “Brazil”. It was wonderful”
