One of China’s top animators, Te Wei, best-known for his traditional style of artwork, has died of respiratory failure in Shanghai. He was 95.

Te was one of the founders of the Chinese animation biz, and the only artist in China to receive the lifetime achievement award by the Intl. Animated Film Assn.

Born Sheng Song in 1915 in Shanghai, he was best known for the 1956 short animated film “The Conceited General,” which exemplified the style of animation based on traditional Chinese painting.

Other works included “Where Is Mama” (1960) and “The Cowboy’s Flute” (1963).
