Ashley Khirea Wahba is an Egyptian-American artist and jeweler from the NYC area. She graduated from RISD with a BFA in Jewelry + Metalsmithing in 2011, and is attending Royal College of Art for her MFA.

Her current studio work explores notions of identity, ownership, agency, and reclamation, often in direct response to memetics. She's interested in the role of reference culture and how layers of signaling manifest as a language that traverses URL and IRL.
