The Hercules series represents a traditional statue of Hercules accomplishing multitudes of modern activities and human tasks. When he is not posing or performing tremendous displays of ability and athleticism, Hercules can be seen intently reading, listening to music, being tattooed, and doing everyday things. Through his hyper-realistic sculptures of the ancient figure, Emre has stunned the audience with his striking and playful depiction of heroism and masculine glory.

Emre has been making modern statues of Hercules for the past 10 years. Emre and Studio Bigger are making them into an NFT collection, bridging the gap between the physical and the digital.

"For me NFT is a way to build digital bridges to my physical world. It’s a new form of showing my design approach. I always believed and loved the power of 3d and with NFTs I give movement to static sculptures. Now static has become dynamic and this gives me joy."

The upcoming Mighty Hercules NFT Hercules is not Emre's first entry into the NFT space. In fact, Emre has already sold several NFT collections such as the Physical NFT Milestone, worlds 1st sculpture that has an Instagram account sold for 40ETH. Needless to say, his generative NFT collection of 10k NFTs with 50 1:1 NFTs to total 10,050 NFTs are priced to sell. The pre mint is June 13th and the official mint is June 14th.
