This year and the following, he attended the National Meeting of Graffiti in Santo André, São Paulo. In 2006, he was a founding member of the Cultural Center Severo 172, in Rio de Janeiro, dedicated to urban art. In 2008, Gais performed with the graffiti artist Chico at the exhibition "Writing Twistedly With Certain Lines: Symbols of a Generation", at Cultural Space Furnas, in Rio de Janeiro. In 2009, 2010 and 2011, he attended the festival STREET - Reflex on Urban Art in Amsterdam, staying in the city for a few months with each edition. In 2011, he had a work auctioned at Phillips de Pury in London and held the exhibition "From 0 to 100 in 1 second.
