Cesar Buenaventura was an impressionist with landscapes as one of his major subjects. Being the youngest son of Professor Teodoro Buenaventura, a well-known and distinguished UP School of Fine Arts professor, Cesar was part of the Mabini art scene and had several exhibitions at Luneta and in coordination with the Art Association of the Philippines.

The "Mabini Art Movement" produced National Artists and outstanding conservatives such as Salvador Cabrera, Serafin Serna, Oscar Navarro, Cesar Amorsolo, Sr., Roger San Miguel, Rafael "Popoy" Cusi, Oscar Ramos and as well Cesar Buenaventura. Cesar was taught by his father and later became apprentice-assistant of the late National Artist Fernando Amorsolo himself.
