The following fan theories are about Sylar's paintings.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|Sylar sees a "warped" version of the events in his paintings due to his mental instability.||None||- Sylar could simply be a bad painter, or perhaps he just has different taste in art.|
+ Peter Petrelli also said he couldn't paint but his paintings came out similar to the ones Isaac Mendez paints.
• Sylar's paintings appear to be symbolic of events, rather then actually depicting them as Isaac's or Peter's do. For example, the painting depicting him alongside Ted Sprague seems to indicate some kind of battle is about to take place, yet when the prophecy is achieved Sylar kills him without resistance. The painting also looks nothing like the actual scene- Ted is standing with his hands glowing in the painting, while he is tied down in the FBI van in reality. Thus the painting depicts the event--Sylar taking Ted's ability--without actually showing it. His twisted version of Nathan in the President's Office is also done in this way--symbolic of the event, not a snapshot of the future.
