Hernan Javier Muñoz painting

Paintings by Hernan Javier Muñoz

Hernán Javier Muñoz has been living from his art for about four years when he decided to leave everything for painting. Before he was a technician in computers and computer networks. Luckily, one day he changed his course and now he can enjoy this artistic career.

He was born in Argentina (April 5, 1983) from a middle-class family in a neighborhood called ‘Mataderos’ that remains in Buenos Aires in the Federal Capital. It is located in the central-eastern region of the country, on the western bank of the Río de la Plata, in the middle of the Pampas plain, in South America.

His childhood was simple and humble, he attended a state elementary school and with friends spent his afternoons playing soccer in the fields. “You have to imagine that there were no cell phones, tablets or anything that children have today, so all I liked to do was get together to play soccer,” Muñoz adds.

Hernán Javier Muñoz has barely appeared in any contest or particular event. He paints for private collectors and galleries around the world and has been interviewed for several magazines and books such as “Master of Painting” by Artgalaxie, “Ophelia” -magazine that interviews great Masters from around the world, “Of the Great Art” in Chile, “Gulfshore Life” -a prestigious magazine from Florida, United States and the gallery “CLATIA” in China.

Reincarnation and Plato

Reincarnation and Plato

Many naturally assume that growing Western world belief in reincarnation is primarily based on a simultaneous increasing influence of Eastern religion and thought. This assumption is due, in part, that (many) Eastern religions have long known spiritual traditions that incorporate the concept of reincarnation. Paying close attention, the current Western World “rebirth” of a belief in reincarnation (pun intended) owes much or most of the credit to the ancient classical Greeks and their fascinating views on the afterlife and reincarnation. In particular, we owe many of our ideas to the musings and discourses of the ancient classical Greek philosopher Plato (428/427 BC – 348/347 BC).

Reincarnation and ancient Greeks
The idea of re-incarnation was not unknown to the ancient Greeks. The eminent philosopher Plato was a major exponent of this belief (as was Pythagoras and the Orphic mystery religion(s)). Plato attributed the idea back to his mentor Socrates, who he recounts saying upon his deathbed: “I am confident in the belief that there truly is such a thing as living again, and that the living spring from the dead, and that the souls of the dead are in existence, and that the good souls have a better portion than the evil”. – Plato, Phaedo
