“We have seen magnificent masterpieces. In fact, I love this one so much I bought it for a nine-year-old,” said Marty Parker, owner of Bicycle Spin Art and president of Bucket List Productions.
In addition to owning Ax Throwing LLC, he started a new business in the basement of the building, another interactive entertainment business called Spin Art Bike.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s a mud race, a color race, a tomato fight or an escape room, a bubble truck or a bus massage chair or ax throwing chair or Spin Art, which we just released, it’s still the same product, which is a date to put on the calendar that’s going to inspire you and motivate you to go do something and then share it with your friends,” Parker said.
After a quick pep talk on strategy, each team settles down at a station.
One person pedaling the bike, another creating the design and constantly adjusting the colors to their liking, then they spin.
A typical session at Bicycle Spin Art can last over an hour.
“For example, if you’re going really fast, sometimes it’ll splash in a different way, and if you’re going slow and just experimenting,” said Johnstown customer Emma Johnson. “And then I started pouring more and more paint and it got out of hand. And if now you can see it’s almost like a 3D painting, that’s so cool.
Parker said he continues to appreciate the new techniques visitors use to create art.
He said that besides being a lot of fun, it’s a great team-building exercise. Parker looks forward to what the future holds.
“We have a thriving art scene here in Columbus and we really think that’s a huge compliment to that. Because a lot of people go there and they’re in the art scene, but are they in the art scene? Here they can be,” Parker said. “The director of operations suggested that we organize artistic evenings where we have exhibitions of what people have done. You drink your wine and you participate in an exhibition, while also making art. And that’s the part that’s the most exciting.
Bicycle Spin Art is located at 560 S. High St. in Columbus and is open Friday through Sunday.
There are also plans to open locations in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
