Miguel Calderón (born June 1, 1971 in Mexico City) is a Mexican artist and writer best known for his work "Aggressively Mediocre/Mentally Challenged/Fantasy Island (circle one)," which was part of a 1998 exhibit bought by Wes Anderson and shown in the film The Royal Tenenbaums. He received his BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1994. He has worked in paint, photography, video and installation.

Much of Calderón's work has been called "low-brow" and that he "has a knack for pushing crass stereotypes and clichés to absurd and provocative extremes." An article in Sculpture magazine called him "something of an international phenom," and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art referred to him "[t]he enfant terrible of contemporary art in Mexico.".
