Derelict: Dreamland Bedding

Hi,

It’s a new year and new projects on the agenda. I have been working very hard on two sets in the past week. Both form a part of my new project called “Derelict” (Thank you Annika for a suitable name!)

Malta has 70 000 vacant properties (both un-habited houses and abandoned shops). There are many reasons for it: legal quarrels, families moving out of the area, tenants dying, and business going bankrupt. However Malta is very small (316 square km) and new building sites take away the very little open space that we are left with.

I wanted to portray some of the devastated, forgotten sites that now remind of a ghost town. They are beautiful yet haunting in the same time.

This is an old furniture shop in Birkirkara named Dreamland Bedding. I have no idea why they went bust but they seemed to be quite a large business between 1997 and 2001. Since 2002 the shop is in disrepair.

How can you go out of business with such a logo? Is it up for grabs?

The logo is really magnificent.
