This work is a reinterpretation of the painting of the same title by Raphael Sanzio from the beginning of the 16th century and it is part of the "Rebirth" Series. According to legend, St George was responsible for defeating the dragon that plagued the villages, devouring their inhabitants. And Raphael chose the traditional story in which the monster tries to devour a princess, to portray in his composition. In "Rebirth", the artist pays tribute to the masters of the Italian Renaissance period by presenting reinterpretations of their works in allusion to another renaissance the world will have to go through after the current crisis caused by the pandemic. In Neto's opinion, there is a need for an intense revaluation of the world and models of life and society, in addition to questioning and revising the status quo. An inner search for the most sublime expression of what the human being is capable of performing as co-creator of this world and as aspecies is necessary. And, with the Renaissance as the subject of his first series of paintings, the artist also makes reference to his own rebirth for art after many years of denying himself that path. Upon rediscovering himself as an artist, Neto felt that his need to express himself visually was of vital importance to him, and as he turned his gaze back to art he realized that he had long been in a kind of "Dark Ages" self-imposed through his choices that distanced him from art. It was then that he decided to seek his own rebirth for a less stifling, fuller, lighter and more celebratory life.

Since he was very young, Neto showed great aptitude for visual expression in his early years. In the early grades in school, he already demonstrated a differentiated ability to recognize and reproduce shapes and figures. Always very introverted, his favorite toys were always pencils and paper with which he spent hours and could thus translate and express, better than by any other way, his imagination, his inner universe and his ideas. And then, around 13 years old, he decided to learn the techniques to improve his drawing. Later, however, because he did not believe that his art could become his profession, he left this passion aside and ended up becoming a military man, graduated in Systems Analysis and specialized in an MBA. His need to express himself through visual language, however, remained always latent until, after years of incompleteness, he could no longer suppress his creative impulse and went back to drawing and decided to learn to paint. Self-taught, his acrylic technique can be classified as realistic with regard to proportions, but he is quite expressionist in relation to the application of the paint on the support and the colors that are used subjectively, since these are not predefined in a specific palette, but chosen spontaneously during the execution of the work.
