The artwork itself is a produced work so it can be released under any
license subject to the requirement that the artist also publish the
specific subset of OSM data he used under the ODbL and attributing OSM. But
if he is only using very few objects from the OSM database, a case can be
made that the underlying subset of OSM data is an insubstantial
extract/derivation and therefore the artist has no further obligation under
the ODbL.
